Original AC/DC Singer Dave Evans Says He Was Their Best Vocalist

Original AC/DC frontman Dave Evans has singled out what he considers to be the best vocalists in the band, but he believes “real” fans should appreciate all members, past and present.

Evans was one of the founding members of AC/DC in late 1973, along with Malcolm and Angus Young, drummer Colin Burgess and bassist Larry Van Creet. Evans sang on the band's first official single, “Can I Sit Next to You, Girl”, which had the B-side “Rocking in the Parlour”.

Bon Scott replaced Evans as lead vocalist in the fall of 1974 and would release several successful albums with them throughout the decade until his untimely death in 1980 . A few months later, Brian Johnson was recruited as their next singer and assumed the lead role. Thus began Australian clothing.

“If you're an AC/DC fan, you have to embrace the whole band, because first of all, there were five founding members, and I was one of them,” he continued. “If you're biased against one or the other, then you're not a true AC/DC fan. If you're a Bon Scott AC/DC fan or a Brian Johnson AC/DC fan, then you're part of a band of fans.”
